Gwendoline de Vere gazed out of the window at the drizzling rain and the sloppy streets and sighed dismally, as she pondered on the misery of things In general. "Aye, I am heart hungry," she mur mured in thrilling accents to herself. "What, I wonder, can alleviate these terrible pangs of heart hunger?" Just theu a voice came from the kitchen : "Come on, Gwen ! Dinner's ready. Got liver and bacon today!" Not for Charlotte. Charlotte is the three-year-old daugh ter of a College avenue resident. One of the recent warm evenings she re moved her shoes and stockings and went over to the front porch of a neighbor to show her that she was barefooted. The neighbor said: "You had better get on your shoes or you will catch your, death of dampness." Charlotte immediately replied, "Oh, no. I have had it."— Indianapolte News. First Land Sale.

Which Had Which? Mother had taken Joe and John to the doctor's for an examination as the teacher had suggested. At the supper table that night she reported the ver dict to father. "The doctor says they have adenoids and bad tonsils," she told him. Father looked surprised but before he could speak, up piped six-year-old John : "Which one of 'em is mine, mom, and which one is Joe's?" HAVE KEEN SENSE OF BEAUTY Writer Asserts Soldiers Are by No Means Lacking in Appreciation of Fine Literature. I was asked the other day, writes "S" in the Manchester Guardian, the inevitable question whether, in my opinion, the experiences of tlfi* war Jmd made soldiers more religious. At any rate, I have come across not a few cases in which an appreciation of fine and immaterial things has appeared in unexpected places. Notably there was the instance of John Drinkwater's readings of poetry to the troops. Al lowance must be made for an, un usual personality and a remarkable voice; but, after every allowance has been made, it is a tribute to the power of abstract beauty that the mixed crowd in a Y. M. C. A. hut should sit und. listen spellbound for an hour to the purest tilings in our language. Then again I remember, a man—a "regular' with no slightest pretense to culture—who used to read day after day a little slip of paper. I asked him at last what It was. He said he didn't know, but lie "liked it" I read it and found it was a beautiful extract—pure beauty and no "moral !"—from one of William Sharp's essays. On another occasion talk had got on to the subject of prayer. "I never pray," said one man. "but I read this every nuj-ning." "This" was Robert Louis Stevenson's morning prayer be iinning "The day returns." Why One Becomes Old. One becomes old at a time deter mined by the hereditary tendency of one's stock, by one's temperament, by the intensity with which one has played the game of civilized life, by one's dietetic habits, by the extent to 'which one has lived and played and rested in the open, and by the extent to which one has consumed poisons, like alcohol, tobacco ami caffeine. The idea that one rum increase his longevity merely by the practice of some single personal crotchet is un tenable. We mean such notions as that one can live to be ninety years of age because cold water Is drunk every morning, or no breakfast eaten, or because hot water Is drunk every morning, or a heavy breakfast eaten. Ghl age is determined by a large number of circumstances. Their con trol in individual cases calls for team work on the part of the aspirant after longevity and a wise physician. How Art of Tailoring Spread. The art of tailoring in the western hemisphere appears to have originated in connection with skin garments rath er than those of cloth, an exchange re marks. In the north, throughout the reindeer and caribou area, well-tailoçed skin garments were worn, completely covering the body. The Eskimos and caribou hunting Indians cut out pieces of skin and fitted them together'in in tricate patterns like a modern tailor. The tailoring art probably began in China, whence it spread to Europe, thence to reindeer hunters In Siberia and across from Asia into the new world. Along the Pacific coast the ab original Indians were but scantily clad and the natives of Patagonia usually wore only a breechcloth, although sometimes a co pel ike robe hanging from the shoulders was used. In Mex ico and the Andes region, where the art of weaving reached its height, gar ments retained the angular form in which they cante from the loom. The Occasion.

GOOD ROADS PROSPERITY IN GOOD ROADS Future Development of Country Must Begin With Improved Highways to Relieve Congestion. There are today some 2,500,000 miles of rural roads in the United States. Of thif- amount perhaps 12 per cent could be classified as Improved, while only about one-fourth of one per cent can be said to be suitable for the carriage of heavy-duty motortrucks. And in the face of this condition it can be said without chance of contradiction that the future development of the United States rests upon the roads. The past few years have witnessed a tremendous turnover In transporta tion from the railway to the highway, says Roy D. Chapin, former chairman < of the highways transport committee | of the council of national defense. ! The congestion which prevailed during the war made necessary the commer cial utilization of the highway to an extent thought impossible a scant few years ago. The motortruck, little known be fore the war, sprang into prominence as a commercially practical form of transportation, and while the fighting has ceased the need for the motor truck remains with us, more insistent than ever before. Within certain limitations the freight car of the highway is more efficient than the rail carrier, and be cause of it it may be taken as a per manent form of transportation and one destined to have a large influence on the movements of trade in the future. The hour has struck when the fast moving efficient motor vehicle of com merce must replace the horse and the costly terminal charges which prevail upon the short-haul branches of the rail lines. Already the motortruck has become a "feeder" to the railroad ; shortly it is destined to aid enormous ly to the profitable long hauls, while entirely or very nearly so eliminating the unprofitable spurs. Railroad men generally recognize the new movement and welcome it. Street railway men, not so keenly alert to its possibilities as a feeder to their lines, have yet to take the full est advantage of the opportunities which it presents. But back of the motortruck rests the road. While the highway as such is of little interest to those outside of the engineering field, as a means for transportation it becomes of vital Im portance to every citizen of the United States, whether he be in profession or trade, a minister, a merchant, a doe for. High and low, rich and poor, the toad comes Into contact with all of us, and upon its relative efficiency de pends to a greater extent than most of Motortruck Used to Haul Farm Produce to Market. us dream the ultimate cost of all that we eat, wear, have. "No o5e knows how mach the coun try pays foy cartage," said William C. Redfleld, secretary of commerce, re cently, "but anyone .who looks Into the question is pretty sure to find out that the figures are larger than he thought It could be. Yet cartage is but one phase of road costs. Poor roads mean Isolation, which in turn mean fewer possibil ities for education, fewer opportuni ties for wealth, lower real estate val uations as well as increased costs of supplies. Every sound, fundamental economic reason speaks out for the durable road) just as it protests against the poor, Inadequately constructed highway. Despite these facts, which will be verified by all who have studied the question, despite the fact that the offi cial government figures placed the hauling over the highways at 2,000, 000,000 ton-miles in 1917, onr roads are today all that they should not be. They are Inefficient, Inadequate, anti quated. IMPROVE TO SAVE HAULING Hardening Surface, Reducing Grade or Shortening Distance Bringe Farm Nearer to Town.

THIS HEAD WORTH $10,000 London Doctors Eager to Examine Brain of Man Known as Human Encyclopedia. Of course you have heard of Datas, the human encyclopedia—the man who can memorize and reel off dates quicker than the fire of a machine gun ; the man on whose head the doc tors have placed a price of £2,000? "But I am not anxious to sell it yet for dissection," Datas told a writer for London Tit-Bits the other day. "It Is worth more to me than £2,000." Datas has lately been devouring war facts and had just added a couple of thousand in two and a half hours to his repertoire when we met. "For an outlay of twopence," he said, "I bought a Uttle book on a bookstall, called "Two Thousand Facts About the War.' I bought It and read the list through in two and a half hours and then knew It by heart," There is no doubt about it. I test ed Datas with the book in my hand, and no matter what question I asked him—dates of battles, air raids, names of ships sunk, famous generals' ca reers—he answered them without hesi tation, says the writer. Datas has had many amusing and curious experiences, but the most ex traordinary was the friendly dinner he shared with John Lee, the Babbacombe murderer, and the late James Barry, the executioner who tried to Hang ^g5H555S5S5B5SSB5S5555555HHHSHSS555H5S5S5S5SSV Economy to Both Health and Purse follow a change from codee to the American table drink— Postum Cereal A rich, full-bodied beverage—boiled full fifteen minutes after boiling begins.
